## 2. How Many minutes does shyam take to cover a distance of 500 m, if he runs at a speed of 20km/h?

**Answer:**

**Option A**

**Explanation :**

Ram's speed = 20 km/h = (20 * 5/18) m/sec. =50/9 m/sec.

**Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed. **

Time taken to cover 500m = 500/(50/9) sec

= (500 *9)/50 sec = 90 sec = 1 min 30 sec..
